DOJ Spokeswoman Kerri Kupec was on Fox News with Bill Hemmer this afternoon. During the course of her interview, she told Hemmer that her bosses expect a “report” from U.S Attorney John Durham and his investigation of ObamaGate by the “end of summer.” Or…maybe not.
Here’s a clip, followed by a transcript:

Hemmer: John Durham – when will there be news on that?
Kupec: Well, we hope to see a report by the end of summer. Obviously, this is a criminal investigation – the goal is not a report, it’s a criminal investigation. But certainly, there is a story to be told there. The American people deserve resolution, and frankly, justice deserves resolution. Justice needs to be restored, and I think that report is going to be really pivotal to that one-tiered system of justice. [crosstalk]
Hemmer: You say by the end of the summer? Is that a guarantee?
Kupec: There are no guarantees in life, but we certainly hope to see one by the end of the summer.
Hemmer: Can you guarantee pre-election, Kerri?
Kupec: Bill, I will just tell you this: We are hopeful, and we expect to see a report by the end of summer.
Hemmer: Thanks for coming on today.
I like Kerri Kupec. She is really good at her job and a credit to the institution of the DOJ. That having been said, this interview does not inspire confidence in any way, shape or form. Do we “hope” to see a report by the end of summer, or do we “expect” to see said report? Or are we hopeful and expect to see such a report, but we aren’t sure when it will or will not come?
And what the hell is a report supposed to do for us in any event? As Kupec said herself, Durham is running a criminal investigation here – the only reports we need to see are those on national television reporting on indictments with very visible and public perp walks taking place in the background as the talking head drones on.
Reports are what Michael Horowitz does. They are what congressional committees do. U.S. freaking attorneys prosecute cases. They convene grand juries and seek indictments, and if they want that damn grand jury to indict a damn ham sandwich they had better damn well be able to get that damn indictment.
I do not want to see any tedious report from John Durham. I want to see indictments and perp walks and witnesses testifying and James Comey and John Durham crying and Peter Strzok and Lisa Page being shipped off to separate federal prisons.
Please, Ms. Kupec, go back to the DOJ, get your talking points straight, and stick to the story. At least give us that. We are not stupid children and deserve better than this.
That is all.
